MULTIMED 2021 : Multimedia and Multimodal Analytics in the Medical Domain and Pervasive Environments

Prague, Czech Republic
Event Date: Jan 25, 2021 - Jan 27, 2021
Submission Deadline: Jul 12, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Sep 20, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Oct 18, 2020


This special session aims at presenting the most recent works and applications in the area of multimedia analysis and digital health solutions in medical domains and pervasive environments. More specifically, multimedia research is becoming more and more important for the medical domain, where an increasing number of videos and images are integrated in the daily routine of surgical and diagnostic work. This includes management and inspection of the data, visual analytics, as well as learning relevant semantics and using recognition results for optimizing surgical and diagnostic processes. At the same time, pervasive technologies and eHealth systems seem to offer a promising solution for accessible and affordable self-management of health problems. Specifically, multiple layers of intelligence could transform wearable devices, smart home equipment and multimedia information into meaningful behavioral monitoring, including activity recognition. In turn, trends and patterns can be highlighted while the user model and situation can deliver intuitive, personalised and context-aware spoken feedback.
